The best-laid plans o' mice an' men gang aft a-gley. --Robert Burns Let me share with you how I came to realize the importance of symbolizing goals and programs. It all started when I launched the 400 Year Project (to make improvements 20 times faster than ever before) in September 1995. I held an initial meeting to explain the project and to seek volunteers. That had worked. Now I had to begin to deliver solid improvements that others could use. Where should I start? Returning to the office after the 400 Year Project launch meeting in September 1995 nike air max 90 női olcsón , my instincts as an historian kicked in. After all, a project that was going to have such great success should be well documented for the benefit of future generations. The raw video footage (shot without benefit of tripod) was packed off to a video production company that was charged with creating a videotape version of the launch event. Only someone filled with totally unjustified confidence would ever have had that reaction. But there I was. Any normal human being would have spent time in hiding hoping that the burden of the task would take care of itself! I, however, next turned my attention to planning the spring meeting for 1996. Even though I had no idea what we would do at that meeting or how we would develop anything to share during the next six months, we quickly reserved a meeting room and alerted our committee of the date. A few potential volunteers for the steering committee had avoided me after the meeting, so I also began tracking down those people to see if they would be willing to help. Most were wiser than I was and concluded that they were too busy to help: They were probably counting their blessings that they weren't going to be working on my version of Don Quixote's quest. To the skeptical listener, this project must have sounded like a boondoggle that could waste a lot of time before running out of steam. Long-range planning does not deal with future decisions. It deals with the futurity of present decisions. --Peter F. Drucker Art is one of my passions. I began collecting original art while still in college and have been fortunate enough to occasionally indulge my tastes for abstract lithographs, aquatints, paintings nike air max skyline eladó , and sculptures since then. To get a sense of my interest in art collecting, you should know that I used to describe the main benefit of having a company as providing an opportunity to decorate the offices with art. Prospective clients were often invited to visit a museum show with me where I would explain the ins and outs of seemingly indecipherable abstraction. Naturally, then, I liked the idea of creating visuals to help communicate the project. My good friend, the artist Tobi Kahn, kindly agreed to produce two commissions that would serve as important visual expressions of making 400 years of progress in only 20 years. The first commission is informally called The Seven Days of Creation and expresses God's work as described in the opening passages of Genesis. The work comprises seven individual acrylic paintings on small boxes. The images sweep from the front onto the four wide sides of the boxes to increase your sense of seeing painted sculptures. In addition, Tobi has an amazing ability to take a painting and make it seem three dimensional by raising the depth of the paint on some sections by nearly a quarter inch. Even if the work hadn't commemorated the start of the project, Tobi's great art would have been inspiring in and of itself. With Tobi's help, we also used a photograph of the seven images to create a note card that we shared with everyone involved in the project. In the spirit of encouraging creativity nike air max skyline férfi , we also developed a tradition that these works are hung at different heights to add to viewer interest and inspire creativity. Intrigued by that concept, Tobi later did a major show where he hung dozens of paintings in similarly random-appearing fashion. It was stunning. Later, I began to think about what purposes the project should advance. Clearly, making 400 years of progress in improving personal appearance shouldn't have the same emphasis as eliminating painful, lethal diseases. I wanted to create a focus for our thinking about improvements so that our modest activities would not become too diffuse to be effective. Those initial purposes were defined as health, happiness, peace, and prosperity. My thinking was that without health there is no sound foundation for a constructive life. Once health is in place, it's much easier to grasp for happiness. Enjoy enough happiness and there would be the possibility of feeling peaceful and acting peacefully towards others. With that peace in place air max 95 eladó , one could expect that cooperation and prosperity could be effectively pursued. Unfortunately, many people start with pursuing prosperity as their focus and never get around to health, happiness, and peace. So the order of focus is important. Working with Tobi to select among images that he designed by the dozens, the second commission resulted in four medium-size paintings on wooden boxes, one for each of the four purposes. As before, we created greeting cards based on these four images and shared those cards with the steering committee and our clients. Unveiling the second commission was also the centerpiece of one of our semiannual project review meetings. Looking at the art allowed me many opportunities to use the symbols to explain the project in more tangible ways before the first books were produced on the subject.
